The Social Housing program provides safe and adequate housing to individuals and families in need. It's intended to serve households with low incomes, and priority is given to seniors (60+), Families with children or dependants, and individuals with disabilities. The rent for either apartment or housing unit is based on gross household income. To be eligible for the Social housing program you must be legally allowed to be in Canada, NOT temporary visitors to Canada or Foreign students and have a gross income and assets below the program limits. Households are prioritized for the Social housing program based on need. Each application is assessed accurately and impartially by using a point scoring system. The applicant is scored on a scale that assesses housing need according to certain criteria. The total number of points the applicant receives when all the categories are added up is their point score.

To assess three things are considered: 1) Adequacy - whether the applicant household is homeless or lives in a home that puts their health or well-being at risk... 2) Suitability - Whether the current homes meets the needs of all household members... 3) Affordability - Whether the current shelter costs are more than 30% of the gross household income. Applicants will also need to provide the housing authority with a recent rental history, including landlord references. Units are allocated to approved applicants who have the highest point scores and NOT allocated on a first come, first serve basis. Once approved the applicant signs a lease agreement between the housing authority and themselves. A lease must be signed prior to taking possession of a unit, PLUS a security deposit of a minimum of $125 when the lease is signed. (Security deposit is less than $400). Tenants who receive social assistance may provide a letter of guarantee from the Ministry of Social Services instead of a security deposit.

Rent is set at 30% of a household's gross income. Tenants with lower incomes will pay lower rents than tenants who have higher incomes; this is subject to the minimum and maximum rent amounts set by SHC.

Annual Rent Reviews are done to determine whether there have been any changes to gross household income that would result in either an increase or decrease in rent. That review's date is stated in the lease. For households that receive income assistance, the rent reviews occur when income benefits change. Tenants must notifuy the housing authority immediately if a member of the household begins to receive or no longer recieves income assistance. A tenant may ask for a rent reduction as well if - The Household income has decreased over the prior two months or the decrease in gross income will result in a reduction in rent of $50 or more..AND.. the current rent is more than 35% of the household's gross income. Tenants should provide the change in their income within the first 7 days of a calender month in order for the next month's rent to be reduced. Households that receive income assistance and pay rent based on the shelter rate or households that pay the minimum rent amount are NOT eligible for rent reductions.
